Continental Tyre South Africa has received the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System certification for its Port Elizabeth Plant Warehouse, testifying to the company’s consistently high standards for quality products and service.
This follows an audit conducted in 2014 by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) on the Plant Warehouse operations. A surveillance audit was also completed, with the lead SABS auditors reporting that the RTT Port Elizabeth Business Units at the Regional Distribution Warehouse, Plant Warehouse and Transportation division passed with zero findings.
The ISO 9001:2008 certificate and flag were recently handed to Continental’s Plant Warehouse team, led by Wayne Brown, General Manager of Manufacturing for Continental Tyre SA, in recognition of this achievement.
“Receiving the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System certification recognises Continental’s commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest quality standards throughout the company,” Brown said.
“This is a tribute to the great work done by the Plant Warehouse team, including the employees and our supplier RTT, to drive this process and keep it at the highest level.”
The ISO 9001:2008 standard specifies the requirements for a quality management system, which is used to assess the company’s ability to provide products that meet all customer and regulatory requirements.
It also aims to enhance customer satisfaction through effective application and conformity related to the quality management systems, including processes for continual improvement.
ISO is an independent global organisation that comprises 162 national standards bodies, including the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS).
